just for kicks

For My friends and those that I think that are.

Stop in tell a joke,say hello kick back
Hey, Pappey
Thursday, October 22, 2009 9:04 PM by Gem
"For my friends and those that I think that are"...
Hmmm... Do I have to wait for your 'approval' that I'm a friend, or is this going to post right now? Time will tell...
What's going on in Pappey's world today? I took 2 of 10 kitties to the vet and spent $125 for the vet to tell me they are A-Okay. (Like I didn't know that already.)
What's shakin', everybody? This blog can be like a slow, slow Twitter... :-)
I'll be back with some jokes. Pappey - please make this able to accept "open" comments?

It did Gemini,glad the kitties are ok,sorry it cost you $125 to find that out
"Traffic Camera""
Thursday, October 22, 2009 10:42 PM by Gem
A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He assumed that his picture had been taken for exceeding the speed limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding... So, just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but, again, the camera flashed!
Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the camera again, but the traffic camera again flashed!
He tried a fourth time with the same result.
He did this a fifth time, and was now laughing hysterically when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail's pace.

Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail - for driving without a seat belt. :-)

Hey He was not speeding,the seat belt laws are just as bad.:)
Don't talk to my parrot !!
Friday, October 23, 2009 12:40 PM by Beaudro
Don't talk to my parrot...

Wanda's dishwasher quit working so she called in a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day,
she told the repairman, "I'll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher. leave the bill on the
counter, and I'll mail you a check."

'Oh, by the way don't worry about my dog Spike. He won't bother you.

But, whatever you do, DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot!'


When the repairman arrived at Wanda's apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest
looking dog he hed ever seen. But just as she said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman
go about his work.

The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling, cursing and name calling.

Finally the repairman couldn't contain himself any longer and yelled, 'Shut up, you stupid, ugly bird!'

To which the parrot replied, 'Get him, Spike!'

Some people just don't listen

Two Garbage Bags

A little old lady is walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her.. One of the bags rips, and every once in a while a $20 bill falls out onto the sidewalk.

Noticing this, a policeman stops her, and says, 'Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of your bag.'
'Oh, really? Darn,' says the little old lady. 'I'd better go back, and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me...'

'Well, now, not so fast,' says the cop.'How did you get all that money?' 'You didn't steal it, did you?'

'Oh, no,' says the little old lady. You see, my back yard is right next to the football stadium parking lot. On game days, a lot of fans come and pee through the fence into my flower garden. So, I stand behind the fence with my hedge clippers.
Each time some guy sticks his thing through the fence, I grab it and I say, ''$20 or off it comes!''

'OK, that seems only fair,' laughs the cop.. 'So, good luck.

Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?'

'Well, you know', says the little old lady, 'not everybody pays.'

"Bed Sheets"
Sunday, October 25, 2009 3:04 AM by Gem
An extremely modest man was in the hospital for a series of tests, the last of which had left his bodily functions very upset. Upon making several false alarm trips to the bathroom, he decided the latest episode was another false alarm and stayed put.
He suddenly filled his bed with diarrhea and was embarrassed beyond his ability to remain rational! In a complete loss of composure, he jumped out of bed, gathered up the bed sheets, and threw them out the hospital window!
A drunk was walking by the hospital when the sheets landed on him. He started yelling, cursing, and swinging his arms violently trying to get the unknown thing off of him, and ended up with the soiled sheets in a tangled pile at his feet.
As the drunk stood there unsteady on his feet staring down at the sheets, a hospital security guard, barely containing his laughter and who had watched the whole incident, walked up and asked, "What the heck is going on here?"
The drunk, still looking down replied,
"I think I just beat the sh!t out of a ghost!"

A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team's bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.

'Oh, I really liked it,' she replied, 'especially the tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn't understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.'

Dumbfounded, her date asked, 'What do you mean?'

'Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was: 'Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!' I'm like....Helloooooo? It's only 25 cents!!!!!!!!!!!

The 11th Husband !!!

A young man married a beautiful woman who had previously divorced 10 husbands. On their wedding night, she told her new husband to "Please be gentle; I'm still a virgin."

"What ? " said the puzzled groom. "How can that be if you've been married ten times?"

"Well, husband #1 was a Sales Representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

"Husband #2 was in Software Services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function; but he said he'd look into it and get back with me.

"Husband #3 was from Field Services; he said that everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.

" Husband #4 was in Telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver..

"Husband #5 was an Engineer; he understood the basic process but he wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the- art method.

"Husband #6 was from Administration; he thought he knew how but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not..

"Husband #7 was in Marketing; although he had a product, he was never sure how to position it.

"Husband #8 was a Psychiatrist; all he did was talk about it.

"Husband #9 was a Gynecologist; all he did was look at it.
"Husband #10 was a Stamp Collector; all he ever did was......... .... God I miss him !!.

"But now that I've married you, I'm so excited".

"Wonderful", said the husband, "but why ?

"You're with the " GOVERNMENT "... This time

I have been fine

Nancy Pelosi
Wednesday, November 11, 2009 3:41 PM by cyrus55
The Pope and Nancy Pelosi are on stage in front of a huge crowd.

The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and for the rest of their lives whenever they speak of this day they will rejoice!"

Pelosi replied, "I seriously doubt that; with one little wave of your hand? Show me."

So the Pope slapped her.
Good One

Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers
Monday, November 30, 2009 11:00 AM by cyrus55
Exchanges between pilots and traffic controllers

Actual exchanges between pilots and control towers:

Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles !"
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"

Tower: "TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 Degrees."
TWA 2341: "Center, we are at 35,000 feet . How much noise can we make up here?"
Tower: "Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"

From an unknown aircraft waiting in a very long takeoff queue: "I'm f...ing bored!"

Ground Traffic Control: "Last aircraft transmitting, identify yourself immediately!"
Unknown aircraft: "I said I was f...ing bored, not f...ing stupid!"

O'Hare Approach Control to a 747: "United 329 heavy, your traffic is a Fokker, one o'clock, three miles, Eastbound."
United 329: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this...I've got the little Fokker in sight."

A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight. While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asked, "What was your last known position?"
Student: "When I was number one for takeoff."

A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down. San Jose Tower Noted:
"American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, if you are able. If you are not able, take the Guadeloupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport."

My favorite.
A Pan Am 727 flight, waiting for start clearance in Munich , overheard the following:
Lufthansa (in German): "Ground, what is our start clearance time?"
Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English."
Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany . Why must I speak English?"
Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war!"

Tower: "Eastern 702, cleared for takeoff, contact Departure on frequency 124.7"
Eastern 702: "Tower, Eastern 702 switching to Departure. By the way,after we lifted off we saw some kind of dead animal on the far end of the runway."
Tower: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff behind Eastern 702, contact Departure on frequency 124.7. Did you copy that report from Eastern 702?"
Continental 635: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff, roger; and yes, we copied Eastern... we've already notified our caterers."

One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed. The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee. Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said,"What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?"
The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing like yours and I'll have enough parts for another one."

The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206.
Speedbird 206: " Frankfurt , Speedbird 206! clear of active runway."
Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven."
The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop.

Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?"
Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now."
Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?"
Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, -- And I didn't land."

While taxiing at London 's Airport, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727.
An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"
Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour, and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"
"Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.
Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking:

"Wasn't I married to you once?"

winds too much
Tuesday, December 8, 2009 3:18 PM by laurafletcher

Santa, please bring enough money to finish our furbabies new home.

My wife sent me a video via email. It shows a wife "chewing" on her husband, saying, "If you think these K-Mart earrings are going to make it, you've got another think coming!" He opens the front door dangles the keys of a new Cadillac Escalade in front of her. She's so happy and runs right out to it, puts the key in the ignition and it promptly explodes! The husband closes the door.
I replied to her, "So, if there is a new tractor in the driveway, I shouldn't start it?" She said not to worry, that I wasn't a(that word the rhymes with witch)........I don't expect a tractor though.
She, however, has a new flat screen TV coming, which is stashed in the back room, thanks to Wal-mart's rerun of the Black Friday deal + $50.

Anyone one else out here admit to being 'blizzarded-in'?? :-(
Actually, I kind of like it. It's very quiet with no one outside making any noise, because the snow's too deep! I think we broke the 1960 record for snowfall in the northeast.
Have a good weekend, everyone! :-)
Happy snowy weekend!! LOL

Sorry, Gem, I didn't mean to double post......must be that "knee jerk" reaction to Ben Nelson......
Now.....how do I delete the extra post?
Pappey has apparently succumbed to the economy. The message on returned email indicates that his account has been temporarily suspended. At this time of the year, as well as the rest of the year, family is more important than internet access.
Pappey's account
Monday, December 21, 2009 1:25 PM by cyrus55

Pappey is fine....don't worry

Sorry for the double post. Been having 'puter trouble today and could not tell if it went through the first time. After that I couldn't get on line at all for 2 hours till I finally did a hard re-start.

Shoveled a path to the street, turned around and it was blowing so much I could hardly tell where I just got done shoveling...

Going down to -9 tonight, and that is NOT the wind-chill. Wind-chill will be around -25! Brrrrrr.

I became confused when I heard the word "Service" used with these agencies:

Internal Revenue 'Service'
U.S. Postal 'Service'
Telephone 'Service'
Cable TV 'Service'
Civil 'Service'
State, City, County & Public 'Service'
Customer 'Service'

This is not what I thought 'Service' meant.
But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to 'Service' a few cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those agencies are doing to us.
You are now as enlightened as I am.

Father O'Malley rose from his bed. It was a fine spring day in his new Washington DC parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of air and to see the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn.

He promptly called the US House of Representatives for assistance..

The conversation went like this: "Good morning. This is Speaker Pelosi.

How might I help you?"

"And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St.Brigid's. There's a jackass lying dead in me front lawn. Would ye be so kind as to send a couple o' yer lads to take care of the matter?"

Speaker Pelosi, considering herself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, "Well now father, it was always my impression that you people took care of last rites!" There was dead silence on the line for a long moment.

Father O'Malley then replied: "Aye, that's certainly true, but we are also obliged to first notify the next of kin."

This Texan heard that everything in Alaska was bigger than Texas.Not beleiveing this he went to most Northern part of Alaska to find out for hisself.After arriving and hanging out at the local saloon.He hears all this commotion out side people boarding up the windows and children screaming "Egor is coming Egor is coming"The Texan turns around everyone is leaving the saloon and when getting back up to the bar the bartender sets him up a fifth and informs him that he can stay and drink all he wants but the bartender is getting out of there as "Egor is coming"So before long the Texan hears these riotous acts outside.Peaks out the saloon doors and here comes some guy riding a grizzly bear and swinging a wolf in one hand and a rattle snake in the other.Sure enough the guy stops right in front of the saloon-kicks the grizzly over and busts the door off the hinges while entering the saloon.The Texan during this time has jumped on the other side of the bar figuring noone bothers the bar tender.The guy walks up and says to the Texan."Give me a fifth of whiskey"The guy then breaks the top off the fifth and drinks it down.Looks at the Texan and says"Give me another fifth"Same thing breaks the top off of it and drinks it down.Looks at the Texan and just barely swaying a little says"Give me one more bar keep.I got to get out of here Egor is coming"

2 Brazilian Soldiers
The Dept of Defense briefed the president this morning.
They told President Obama that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq .
To everyone's surprise, all the color drained from Obama's face.
Then he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.
Finally, he composed himself and asked, 'Just how many is a brazilian?'
This is not surprising, since he obviously has no understanding of billion or trillion either.

How To Be Gracious

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement - not even her parent's nasty divorce.

Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear, and would be the best-dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new, young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother! Jennifer asked her father's new young wife to exchange it, but she refused.

“Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm wearing it,” she replied.

Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, “Never mind sweetheart.

I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day.”

A few days later, they went shopping, and did find another gorgeous dress for her mother.

When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, “Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."

Her mother just smiled and replied, “Of course I do, dear. I’m wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.”


Women are like phones: They like to be held, talked to, and touched often. But push the wrong button and your butt is disconnected!

We are in trouble....

population of this country is 300 million.

Which leaves 55 million to do the work.

Of this there are 35 million employed by the federal

Leaving 20 million to do the work.

2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied
with killing Osama

Which leaves 17.2
million to do the work.

Take from that total the 15.8
million people who work for state and city
Governments. And that
leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

At any given
time there are 188,000 people in hospitals.

1,212,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people
in prisons.

That leaves just two people to do the

Perhaps Pappey checks back once in awhile. I don't often get emails from him, either.
He no longer lives in the upper NE, but doesn't seem as happy as I'd like. He should be "jumping for joy" being down here in the upper Mid south.

Hope you are enjoying your retirement. :-) Stay busy - at least in your mind.
Use it or lose it! Ha :-)
It always helps body, mind, and spirit to STAY BUSY.

Hey Pappey,

I hope this finds you well. Heard you were no longer in Maine but down in the south now. In case you didn't hear they did close Brunswick Naval Air Station. My daughter is now with the fleet down in Norfolk. I like the picture of you and your granddaughter. We now have a granddaughter on the way, due in August.

Once again Pap. Thank you for serving!!!
